This day trip out of Bangkok was a good one where you get immersed into the past. Looking at the death railway line construction was amazing given the harsh environment during the war time. We have a great driver that drive us around smoothly from/to Bangkok. We will also like to thank our tour guide YAI who is very knowledgeable and thoughtful. She has ensured that we make the best out of our day trip to understand and see the past of the POW that have gone through under the Japanese occupation period. Her thoughtful gesture to ensure that we are comfortable throughout the journey was also commendable.
Nice guide and driver. The JETAH museum is a must. Very moving to see what the prisoners had to go through. The ride on the boat and train were great. You'll have plenty of occasions to take beautiful pictures. Wasn't very hungry so I didn't have much food for lunch but it looked OK from what I saw. Because of the traffic in Bangkok, don't expect to be back before 6pm, a long but very rewarding day. Highly recommended!
Excellent tour, the guide Nicko very informative and knowledgable and looked after us at every turn. Very moving to travel where the POW's and Thai and other workers slaved to build the railway. "Forgive but not forget"
really excellent trip for anyone interested in this sad time. Definitely my favorite tour in Bangkok. Tour included visit to war cemetery near the bridge [very moving]. Local train surprisingly comfortable for 3rd class and lovely trip through the peaceful Thai countryside
Experience was wonderful and moving. Guide was very knowledgable, friendly and willing to help in any way. Language was not a problem. Train journey was good, country side was a joy, and food was relatively good. I had seconds. Journey back to Bangkok was around 5 5 and half hours, traffic was busy, so make provision by taking a book or music, or just sleep the journey back. Would definitely go again. Take lots of pictures.
What a mix of emotions and experiences today. From seeing the thousand commemorated to travelling over the bridge through the landscape that killed and made so so many suffer. To wanting to make the 5 spaniards who talked so loudly, ignorantly and irreverantly ALL the way on the train suffer. Shame on you all for your forgetfulness.
Great tour guide (retired School Teacher), informative and told it how it was!! Really enjoyed this boat ride, walked over the Bridge, train ride back, and tasty lunch - well done.
We had a lovely day with our tour guide Teewan. The driver was also the best that we had experienced in Thailand! Our trip was interesting and informative,we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Viator to other travelers!
